Divorce, family breakdown, violence in society and the media, has produced a “shell shocked” generation of kids suffering from anxiety!
Watch anxiety expert and author, Dr. Steve O’Brien, who will demonstrate how you can “connect” with anxious children and inspire them to practice new self-regulation skills. You will learn how to help parents (“bulldozers,” “helicopters” and “snowplows”) and schools gain confidence, gratification and success in helping their most anxious kids.
To increase your effectiveness with the various manifestations of child anxiety, Dr. O’Brien will address each of the following disorders with case examples and clinical vignettes:
Separation Anxiety Disorder
Generalized Anxiety Disorder
Obsessive-compulsive disorders (including skin picking and hair pulling)
Social Anxiety Disorder/Selective Mutism
Trauma- and Stressor-related disorders
Emphasis will be on creative psychotherapy involving insight-oriented, cognitive-behavioral, biological, mindfulness, and family systems interventions.
Best of all, upon completion of this training, you’ll be eligible to become a Certified Clinical Child & Adolescent Anxiety Treatment Professional (CCATP-CA) through Evergreen Certifications. Certification lets colleagues, employers, and clients know that you’ve invested the extra time and effort necessary to understand the complexities of child and adolescent anxiety counseling.
